The Latest on the Library
The City and County of Swansea has recently formalised its process for Community Asset Transfers (CAT) – hence Friends of Pennard Library (FoPL) has completed an expression of interest in taking on the library building following this new procedure. Community Asset Transfer is an established mechanism used to enable the community ownership and management of publicly owned land and buildings.The ultimate aim of Community Asset Transfer is community empowerment – that is, to ensure that land and buildings are retained or transformed then operated for public benefit through community asset ownership and management. We expect to hear from the Local Authority, regarding our expression of interest, in the next six weeks.

 

The FoPL Shop
In its first 12 months of operation, the shop has raised over 25k – which will all go towards maintaining Gower’s library in Pennard. Thanks to all of our volunteers and those who have donated so generously. We are now taking more expensive items to auction houses, or selling on ebay, to obtain the best prices.

 

If you would like to keep up to date with progress or become a member of FoPL (£5 per household), please visit the website:
